Default Verron wants to stay...

Haynes could potentially use Sunday's game as an audition for other NFL teams if he gets the bulk of the carries. He becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season, and can offer his services to the highest bidder.

There's no telling what a third-down back with just 643 yards in four seasons will make on the open market, but the better Haynes plays, the better the opportunity could be out there for him, even if that means re-signing with the Steelers.

"I absolutely want to stay (in Pittsburgh)," Haynes said. "I really don't know what the situation will be. That is so much in the future that I am really, honestly, trying to take it one day at a time. Being here in Pittsburgh is all I have ever known. I am into the system. I know the system very well."

well i won't lose sleep if he doesn't return, but i guess i wouldn't mind seeing him back, he has done some clutch first downs and is decent when he gets carries.

I think Verron's playing has vastly improved from last year, and I think he'd be a better resigning then Duce.

Let him go if he can......I don't see him being much use (look at the last couple of years) to the Steelers next year. Can he really do something that the Steelers can't pick up in the draft or FA??

Nice 3rd stringer fo the Steelers..... if he could get 2nd or 1st for someone else, I'd let him go!!

That's just my opinion.

GO STEELERS!!!

Oh I don't think he's near as good as Duce is. He's getting better, but he he gets a good deal somewhere he should jump on it. My little 2 cents from here in Iraq..

LOL.Duce is one of the biggest bust there is.Talent wise..yes he is good but.thats why Philly got rid of him , you cant do anything if your on the sidelines.In the last 3 to 4 years he has only played a few game's.He's a waste of money and cap space.There's gonna be alot of RB's out there to get.

If Betttis and Staley both go! We may won`t to consider keeping Haynes, and picking up one more back. One reason Haynes is a good third down back is because he can block, and catch

Haynes prove yourself Sunday when you get in. Play well. And make sure you run over some lions.

He's a value-type player who knows the system and will probably re-sign on the cheap, and he contributes as both a 3rd down/pass situation back as well as on special teams, and gives us depth at the RB position. I'd be happy to see him back next year...
